Impact Hub Houston invites YOU to connect and collaborate with passionate people who are working on projects, ventures, and collaborations to improve the City of Houston.
The Global Goals for Sustainable Development can only be met if we work together. Investments and support are needed to ensure innovative technological development, fair trade, and market access in Houston. To build a better world, we need to be supportive, empathetic, inventive, passionate, and above all, cooperative.
Open Project Night has been hosted across the Impact Hub global network for a few years, and we are carrying the torch locally to support problem solvers, connectors, and leaders in their efforts to create the change they wish to see in the world.
Here’s how OPN works:
- We have a new theme each month in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- Anyone can sign up to participate (whether you have an idea/project or just want to provide feedback, advice, or support)
- We feature 1-2 guest speakers to kick-off project presentations
- Open Mic for anyone else to pitch will follow (2 min max per pitch)
- Everyone moves to the virtual working room for open networking & collaboration
February’s theme is SDG 10: https://www.globalgoals.org/10-reduced-inequalities
If you have an idea, are working on something, or are looking for ways to collaborate with people who are doing work at the intersection of innovation and impact this event is for you!
